to be on the committee to yell questions at susan rice. >> hey i wonder why. maybe it's because he's out of committees because he's termed out of all of the major committees. maybe that's because republicans have limitations on how long you can be on a committee and he's done all of them! >> stephanie: dick durbin was asked if he would be approved. he said he thinks so. some of the criticisms against her have been unwarranted adding she's an extraordinary person. john mccain wants to be able to -- huh? benghazi! >> stephanie: what do you think? everybody is saying is it going to be john kerry or susan rice? what do you think? >> i think susan rice is a great candidate for that. i think actually john kerry is really apparently wanted state but people have talked about him for secretary of defense. i think you could almost have a flak nearly as big with him going for defense as they would susan rice. purple band-aid brigade would be out again. then they would play his tapes from when he was -- i don't know -- vietnam war. >> stephanie: speaking of john mccain he -- he was asked what he

ago i would have lined up with everyone else and said it was very clear that susan rice was the top contender. >> bill: for state. >> for state. now it appears increasingly difficult as much as the president would like to put her in that position, it would be difficult to get confirmed by the senate. >> bill: because of benghazi. >> because of the way the republicans have highlighted this as an issue. john kerry who has been you know the bridesmaid for this position for years and years and years, he is dying for the position. we know that he wants it. he's all lined up and ready to go. it is also very clear senate republicans have made it clear he will sail through a confirmation and that's important. so now it is kind of looking -- by process of elimination that he potentially is back in the front of the line. he remains a top contender. no question. >> bill: would he take defense if he doesn't get state? >> i make no claims to reading the mind of john kerry. he sphnt made himself available to the press to talk about it. >> bill: it would not be a step down to be secretary of defen

capitol, which i would love to talk to you about. let's start with susan rice. we saw and spent some time with her at the party. everywhere i go, people ask me: is the president going to nominate susan rice for secretary of state after what she's been through? >> i am not sure he wants that fight but he's got to -- if he does he want, he has to find something else for her to do, some other big job for her to do if he doesn't go that route. >> bill: i agree. first of all, i hope he -- percentage, i hope he does because i love to see him take on the fight and humil "john mccain and lindsey graham but at the same time, i have to say it's sort of not his style." right? >> right. no drama >> bill: a lot of people are thinking, why would he want to spend his political capitol, all he has got, a lot of what he's got the right now in the early days of his second term, second term on this. it seems he might look for something else for her to to do. >> what could that be? it would have to be a cabinet position. >> bill: national security adviseo. >> if janet non-gaapapalitano moved somewhere e

, without weighing in ambassador rice, john kerry the two most prominent names what is in john mccain's head? >> i'm shocked at some of the statements that he has made. i do know that our ambassador susan rice is qualified rhodes scholar, she is a brilliant woman, worked in the national security, within that team. she knows what she's doing, has done her job well, isen a expert and deserves a fair hearing. do not airport her. do not make it appear that she has not done her job when in fact what she was doing was her job. if the president wants to put her name forward she needs a fair hearing and she is such a well-qualified woman that i hope quite frankly that the president does put her name forward. >> eliot: if there was ever a case where the messager was being shot, she didn't write the information she put forth the c.i.a. did. senator mccain was going after her, some thought there was a personal feud. >> it's hard to imagine but senator mccain should be praising her for doing her job well especially when you have national security crisis, you want most of our officials you want ever

which could put him in a spot to grill susan rice if obama chooses her as his next secretary of state. as we've seen since the benghazi attack, mccain is one of rice's harshest critics. the two met late last month along with other senators to discuss rice's television appearances during the aftermath of those september 11th attacks in libya. rice hoped to put mccain's fears at ease but he came out of the meetings saying he only had more questions than when he went in. mccain spokesman says he will seek a spot on the international affairs panel which oversees the state department. republicans have said they would rather see john kerry as circumstance -- secretary of state over susan rice. hillary clinton is still polling very well after her stint with the state department and democrats are practically begging to see her in 2016. according to the latest abc news, "washington post" poll, 57% of people say they would support her run. although abc is reporting today she said she'll most likely devote her time to her husband clinton's foundation to focus on women and girls worldwide. the u.

the naughty list for campaigning to take down susan rice. it's amazing he gets crankier every year? >> right. but it was stunning that he would call her not very bright. i thought that was kind of the low mark for him. and the whole campaign is incredibly cynical to go on television and go john kerry is awesome. we love john kerry. all of a sudden he is the best thing that has ever happened to the phrase secretary of state. because that's what mccain wants. this whole campaign is really creepy and -- and just -- you know, disturbing. >> stephanie: it's interesting he would go on television and say a woman isn't very bright knowing how many people are silently mouthing you picked sarah palin. >> right. steven colbert calls her honey boo boo, sarah palin. and i am so jealous, all week i'm like why didn't i think of that? it was there and i could have plucked that out, and i didn't. >> honey boo boo you bet ya. >> stephanie: and there it's black friday stampedes or running of [ inaudible ] what is with the trampelers. >> i know they like to step on people in the crowd. >> stephanie: j
